Positivity Project - Cheering Other's Success

Positivity Project - Cheering Other's Success

Our focus this week will once again be on the Other People Matter (OtherBucsMatter) Mindset with a specific focus on Cheering Other's Success.


Students will engage at looking at the Pay it Forward challenge and begin to celebrate their successes as a team. We will also be looking to celebrate individual, team, and school wide success.


Challenge your student every night at dinner to share one what they cheered on someone else that day.
